I'd like to know :

When did the word 'lighthorse' come into existence, replacing (I guess) the amazingly complicated and difficult-to-write-and-remember 'Light Horse'? I see 'lighthorse' often in posts on this forum and elsewhere.

I've also recently seen another new word here and there; 'wargraves', which I assume replaced the old, admittedly overly-complex 'war graves'.

Funny, as hard as I try, I can not find either of these apparently quite common words in ANY dictionary.
